When to use the "How is my visa application progressing?" app?
This app enables you to track a visa application submitted to a Belgian diplomatic or consular post and sent to the Immigration Office for a decision.
How to start the search?
* Contact the Info desk directly if the visa application has been submitted in The Hague or Abuja, because these posts are not yet listed in the drop-down menu.
** If the application was submitted via Visa on Web, log in again to find out the reference assigned by the post to the visa application.
There are four possible results:
- à l'examen (being examined)
- documents complémentaires (additional information or documents needed) *
- accord (visa issued)
- refus (visa refused)
* The result "additional information or documents needed" means that the application is being examined, but that the Immigration Office has requested additional information or documents. If such information or documents need to be provided by the applicant, the post will contact him/her. Do not contact the Immigration Office directly!
What if there are no results?
Please note that due to a shortage of staff to process short-stay visa applications, the registration is currently being done when the application is processed. Therefore, the search will not give any results until a decision is made.
